There are quite a few creative tributaries that run through this piece. Most notable is the channeling that is occurring - which I would explain by the fact that the panelists are taking the important step of identifying and building access to the data, before 'passing on' the information, and finally recalling/interpreting the process ( and the data too.) As though counting footsteps or recalling memories are creative acts. You will also notice they offer quite a lot of 'user' criticism along the way - as they encounter and try out existing interfaces to data.
The present is pure creation, from somewhere, to somewhere else, across a spectrum of energy I would say. Static and frozen to fast and disappearing.
